How much does a funeral cost in Chelmsford?

The typical cost of funerals in Chelmsford typically sits around £3516 with burial constituting 15% and cremation accounting for 85% of the amount of funerals taking place in Chelmsford. However, the actual expense for a family can vary based on specific requirements and choices. For instance, if a family prefers a local celebrant, such as 'Vince Hawkes Rustic Celebrant' found on thecelebrantdirectory.co.uk, rather than a minister or pastor, the cost would be higher.

When calculating the overall expenses of a funeral, it is important to take into account the additional cost of funeral flowers. Local florists like Beehive Florists (Located on 3 Hylands Parade, Wood Street, CHELMSFORD CM2 8BW, Essex) or Eternal Bloom (Phone number 01245 255579) typically charge approximately between £96 up to £457 for funeral flower arrangements.

Even though funeral jewellery, like a cremation necklace, is not typically considered a direct expense of a funeral, it does add to the overall cost. To obtain pricing information about funeral jewellery, we suggest reaching out to Alistair Black Jewellers or visiting their store at 22 Queen Elizabeth II Square, South Woodham Ferrers, Chelmsford.
